JA has always loved the Swiffer. Early on he used it as intended. JE or MA would take one of the joints out and then it would be toddler-sized. JA early imagined it as a guitar and perfected his strum on his imaginary Gibson.
Today, JE said that JA brought the Swiffer to her and asked, “Mommy, can I hit the lamp with the Swiffer?” Of course, she said, “No.” But then added, “Thank you for asking.”
JE says that the whole mood of their home has changed lately as JA seems to have passed beyond the immediacy of the terrible twos. Currently, he uses “please” and “thank you” on a more than regular basis, and he’s far more interested in LE and her well-being. Life is good.
